I don’t know about you, but I love Christmas shopping for women. However, I do often get jealous. For example, I’ll buy something for my sister that I’ll like so much, I’ll then go and buy the same for me! I thought I would show you some of the presents I have collated so far, which will hopefully inspire your Christmas shopping!
First of all, we have haircare. Hair products aren’t often something that springs to mind when it comes to present buying, but people don’t always treat themselves to a nourishing hair treatment, so it can be a lovely suprise. Here are two fantastic treatments, depending on your budget – we have the famous Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (£31.50) and Richard Ward Argan Oil spray (£5.99). Both products will leave your hair feeling soft, healthy and hydrated.
Makeup is always lovely to receive, but it can be tricky choosing the right shades for someone else. A palette is a safe option, so they can pick the perfect shades to suit their own skin tone. This is the Pro Blush palette from Freedom makeup, which has such an incredible range of blusher colours and a stunning highlighter. It contains shades for warm, neutral and cool skin tones and is a fantastic addition to any makeup collection.
Next, we have a cracker – because it wouldn’t really be Christmas without crackers. This little beauty is from Roger & Gallet, and contains a 30ml Hand and Nail balm and a 1.5ml fragrance. This is the perfect secret santa gift when you have a tight budget, but would also make a great stocking filler or table present. The Roger & Gallet Cracker costs £6.00.
We then have a little skincare – an Urban Veda Purifying Protecting Night Cream (19.99) and Bee Good Intensive Hand Repair (£12.00). Urban Veda is a natural skincare brand which has both face and body products for different skin type. My personal favourite range is the Purifying range, as it’s perfect for oily skin, but I’d definitely recommend the Soothing range if you have sensitive skin – it smells incredible too! The Bee Good Intensive Hand Cream is perfect for saving your paws through winter and has a gentle formula to keep your skin happy.
Who says stocking fillers have to be boring? These New CID cosmetics are absolutely stunning make the perfect Christmas gift. We have the i-glow mini blusher compact (£14.00) and award-winning i-gloss light up lip gloss which has a little mirror on the side too. I’m not usually much of a lip gloss fan, but I am obsessed with this. Not only can you apply it in the dark (with the idea of clubs in mind), but the product is not even slightly sticky. It has the most incredible texture!
If you’re looking for something more personal, head to Boomf. Boomf are known for creating those delicious marshmallows with your photos printed on them, but they have recently launched Buntella – cotton bunting with your photos printed on. You can choose any photo to have printed (I thought it would be funny to include my cat!), whether it be a photo of scenery or a photo of friends.
For many, perfume is a classic gift at Christmas, but I absolutely love receiving perfume. Paco Rabanne Olympea has quickly become a favourite of mine in particular, but the new 007 for her is a sweet scent which is bound to put a smile on her face this year. Both scents are available from The Perfume Shop.
Lastly, we have a tanning set that is the perfect gift just in time for her New Years Eve party. Cocoa brown have recently launched two instant tanning products – one shimmer and one matte finish. Best applied with their new double-sided tanning mitt, glide these two gels over your skin and blend for the perfect glow. Both can be removed with water and shower gel after your party. LINK
